Abstract:

Temperature, salinity, density, and sound velocity are the properties of most interest to the physical oceanographer and acoustician. The Naval Oceanographic and Atmospheric Research Laboratory has produced a first-level numerical simulation model that can produce simulated sections of temperature, salinity, density, and sound velocity in the vicinity of an oceanic front. The user controls the front. This technical note documents the algorithms used in the simulation model and provides a users guide to the programs. Two programs are documented. The first program generates the front, and the second produces plots of the frontal properties.
